Social Sleuths (Durham) – Spring 2023
DEVELOPING SOCIAL SKILLS & SELF-REGULATION STRATEGIES FOR CHILDREN

Social Sleuths is a program focusing on developing communication, self-regulation skills and strategies to navigate social situations and negotiate peer interactions.

This program will include social communication and sensory motor activities in the sensory gym, games, art, and concepts from curriculums such as Social Thinking and Zones of Regulation through a neurodiversity-affirming lens.
Develop verbal and non-verbal social skills via strategies for:
- Peer perspective taking
- Conversation skills
- Teamwork & Problem solving
- Developing sensory-based strategies to improve self-regulation

Children are expected to attend every session (barring illness), as the sessions build on each other and group dynamics are an important component. You will not be reimbursed for missed sessions. If you have any questions about the new Emerge Clubs changes or payment options, please refer to our FAQ!
If your child is not attending therapy sessions at Emerge, we will be in touch with you to set up a brief free screening to determine if this program is a good match for your child.
